I was thinking that we could do with a break away from Ewood. Our trip to Millwall didn't do us any harm. And then I remember who our opponents are.

Pukki to have a field day. Kaminski to wonder what he's doing here. Armstrong and Nyambe dreaming of pastures new. Loan players looking forward to returning to their parent clubs. Douglas to mis-control and make a horror back pass or two. Holtby to get injured. Dolan to come on in the last 10 minutes to give us a little bit of pointless life.

I'm seriously contemplating doing something else on Saturday afternoon, but I know I won't because I've been there before. I'll sit, watch, and suffer, like the rest of you. But at least beer is involved.

Tells you everything you need to know about our season and the feelings of the supporters that this thread was set up just ten minutes ago!

Hypothetical, I know, but does anyone think if we got an absolute trouncing it would make any difference whatsoever?

If I thought it would I would happily take a 6 or 7-0 defeat, yes I'm at THAT point. However, I honestly think we could suffer the heaviest league defeat in history, ever, & he'd still be at Brockhall Monday morning.

I'll pay my tenner, as usual, watch, get angry, shout, the dog will go & hide & be then I'll back on here moaning about it as usual. I feel like Bill Murray!

Go on then I'll bite, 3-1 Norwich.

  • Allardyce: Sacked after a 2-1 away defeat against Bolton Wanderers.
  • Kean: Resigned after a 2-1 home defeat against Middlesbrough*.
  • BergSacked after a 1-0 away defeat against Middlesbrough.
  • Appleton: Sacked after a 1-1 home draw against Burnley.
  • Bowyer: Sacked after a 1-1 home draw against Brentford.
  • Lambert: Resigned after a 3-1 home win against Middlesbrough.
  • Coyle: Mutual after a 2-1 away defeat against Sheffield Wednesday**.

* Kean's resignation came a week after this, and a day before the Charlton away game.

** Coyle was still in situ for the Man United Cup game, which I think we lost. Sheffield Wednesday was his last league game.

Make of that what you will, although of the sackings, only half of them followed a defeat. My own feeling is that a hammering wouldn't make a blind bit of difference because Mowbray's and Waggott's excuses are still washing with the Venkys.

During our recent, poor run of results (since February 6), we are 1-3-7. Thats 6 points of 33 possible. Rovers have scored a puny 8 goals, and incredibly, only allowed 13.

During the month of March, we were 1-2-2. Five points out of 15. Rovers defence allowed only three goals, never two in one game, not terrible defending.

Tomorrow will be a heroic effort, alas, to fall short, 0-1. The lads are trying, the effort is there, but they aren’t getting any help from TM & staff. 

If ever there was a team giving a great effort, without receiving much direction, it’s this one. Sad state of affairs, indeed.

To flip that, at least we know that draws won't necessarily save him either.

Feeling optimistic about this game for some reason. I think we're going to win tomorrow. Norwich are due a defeat and won't be expecting much from us based on recent form. We'll get chances to hit them on the break with the pace of Armstrong and Dolan. This might be one of those rare games where things click.

Norwich 1-2 Rovers, with me shouting "why the heck did we not play like this earlier in the season" at the laptop.
